The Le Stick - the Atari motion controller

Recommended Posts

 So I just learnt that there was a motion-controller released for the VCS. How odd.

Yes, this was the "secret weapon" to totally crush people at Track & Field/Summer Games/Decathlon type games.

 

You would just shake the controller and shoot across the screen to victory!

I had one of these. An interesting gimmick, but the novelty quickly wore off. Additionally, having to keep your hand in the upright position, with no support, wears on you. Eventually, we would use the couch armrest to prop-up our arms so we could rest.

 

These things just weren’t as accurate as the CX-40, and not nearly as comfortable as resting a joystick in your lap.

I have one, it sucks to use.  Very much just a gimmick.  Although I've wanted to write a game using two of these in some sort of weird control scheme since you could hold one in each hand.

Well to be fair one REALLY doesn't want mercury poisoning no matter how small the amount of mercury.

It have one of these, but to be honest it's not very good.  I wonder if they did any market testing before they released this thing? All it really has going for it is the novelty factor.
